I played all the X Games, but I have grown jaded by the fact that its more of a factory management sim than anything else. I like to be the lone trader/fighter in a small craft with an incentive to upgrade and explore.

Yeah, that's the way I like to play too. The ability (nay, effectively the requirement) to automate so much of the game makes it less appealing to me. I still enjoy the X games, but I'd rather have a Privateer style game, where I do all the trading myself.

You know that you actually CAN play X that way, right? Nobody is forcing you to set up factories and own 800 ships. It's there if you'd like to do that but you don't have to. Especially since Terran Wars, being a one man operation who takes bounties, missions, hunts pirates etc is extremely lucrative, probably even more so than actually trading/building an empire.

I believe they're going to take away the multiple ships in X-rebirth and just concentrate on you in one ship. (A la the first X.)


Was gonna mention that, but figured hes got the hate on so why bother. It's one thing I noticed about TC and I like it, spent a great deal early on just doing protect station and sector patrol missions, was a blast. Of course once my rating got too high I had to quit because I was getting waaay outclassed and outgunned, my little sabre just coudlnt cut it anymore.

Heh in my game a couple of Xenon frigates, Q and a PX, were really giving me a hard time in Split space... damn Q had me holed up in a station for over two hours before a window opened for me to bug out. Well last night I finally cashed up enough to loadout my Vidor that I got playing the Terran missions, paid those Xenon MF'rs a visit

No exploration lol, I'm over 80 hours in and I doubt I've discovered half the sectors, and I went on a tear with a scout trying to find a place to buy a jumpdrive.

PS Ya saw that you were only going to have one ship in Rebirth, sounds like they are going the MassEffect route. Kinda bummed about that. I really like working my way up until your finally standing on the bridge of your capital ship.
